These gorgeous shawl pins would make an awesome gift or stocking-filler. Sustainably produced, these shawl pins are only available in limited quantities - we've been lucky enough to get our hands on a stock but once they are gone they are gone for a while!
The "mother of pearl" inlay is in fact paua shell from New Zealand, we often know the shell as abalone. The Maori believe that paua shell strengthens the body and heart and if worn, helps the wearer express their feelings. The shell is also believed to bring sensitivity, harmony and connectivity in relationships and brings good luck, prosperity and peace to the wearer.
Well, who wouldn't want some of that!
Size - the pin is 12cm long. They are best suited to hand-knits or fabric with an open quality, due to the blunt end on the pin.
